Edna Crowe (center) of Seoul, Korea, shows a couple of fellow students that it's no small jump from
home lo Oregon. In the accompanying interview she gives her impressions of America and a description
of things hack home. With her are Emma Verdurmen (left), arts and letters freshman, and Helen Angel),

Korea to Eugene> Oregon
How would you like to shop in
Japan, live in Korea, and come
to Ameiica to school? That’s what
Edna Crowe of Korea did.
Edna, now a freshman in nurs
ing at the University, does not go
home for vacations.
"I probably won't go home un
til after T graduate,” she sighed,
“and then I want to come back
here and be a nurse in an Ameri
“You know, home isn’t very dif
ferent from here,” she confided.
"I went to American schools in
Seoul, the capital of Korea, all myj
life, and we had parties and stud
ied just as you do. We didn’t do
quite as much dancing.”
White Russian Friend
"The place is really quite Amer
ican,” she continued. “Of course
out in the country, there are little
thatched houses and stone ones,
but Seoul is very modern.”
“I have the nicest friend over
there; she’s White Russian, has a
creamy skin and red hair, and her
name is Nina Belogolovy. She and
I tried to play tennis together, but
we didn't quite understand it, I
guess,” Edna reminisced.
Her brown eyes flashed interest.
“I'll tell you when 1 really had fun
coming over here on the boat.
We played shuffloboard, ping-pong
and horseshoes. Oh, that trip was
She says she doesn’t know
whether Korea is making any mili
tary preparations, because every
thing is kept secret.
‘‘Some Korean boys have joined
the Japanese army though,” she
hesitated, "and we’re rationed on
sugar and other essentials.”
Asked her hobby Edna skipped
upstairs and brought down a love
ly brocade box full of jewelry from
Korea. Rich jade clips and ham
mered silver bracelets gleamed in
the collection. “I don't wear it
very much,” she explained, “but I
love it. Tt reminds me of home.”
Eugene is a long way from the
Japanese-owned peninsula of Ko

A tAnn ualNickelHop
By BOB YVHITF.LY
Campus piggers are looking for
ward to the annual “Nickel Flop"
in order to check up on “that girl”
that they just haven't gotten
around to taking out.
This year, as is the custom, the
gals are on the quota system. The
organization that has the most
men come over in the course of the
evening in comparison to the num
ber of girls wins the big silver lov
ing cup—for distinguished service.
Six to Eight
The dance opens in typical Okla
homa land rush style at six o'clock
Wednesday evening and continues
until eight. Those who plan to take
in both the Tri Delts and the Al
pha Phis are going to have quite
an overland trek in the 10 minutes
alloted between sessions.
This annual affair started as the
“Dime Crawl,” then was knocked
dowrn 00 per cent to the "Nickel
Hop.” Freshmen and sophomores
generally plan to cut loose and
enjoy themselves, while the more
staid and reserved juniors and sen
iors sit back complacently smoking
their pipes and muse “Youth
league tomorrow night.”
There are always the same types
of graft eaeh year; those who uran
der out for a smoke and then sneak
in again at the next session, those
who put pennies in the box instead
of nickels, those who don’t put
anything in, those who let the girls
put the money in.
Reports are being circulated that
the organizations are frantically
buying smooth records in order to
present the best music available.
When quizzed about playing
banned records, one girl whirled
around and shouted, “Oh, bother
the ASCAP!" (That’s just what
she said—we heard heri. “We'll
play anything we want.”
Have you noticed the little hints
the girls have been dropping lately,
subtle little digs like:

see ME sometime — (said with
2. Lissen to these new records
we got —

Gilbert Says Anzac
By MARY WOLF
"Colleges of New Zealand and
Australia select students more
carefully than do American pub
lic institutions,” declared Dean J.
H. Gilbert of the college of social
science, intervTewed upon his re
turn to Oregon last week after a
term’s leave of absence.
He said that only the higher
rank students from secondary
schools are admitted, non-indepen
dent study is done, vacations are
longer and degrees as in the Eng
lish universities are made to de
pend upon comprehensive examin
“Although the New Zealanders
are strong for recreation,” he con
tinued .“college sports are not so
important as in America. Football
is a more gentlemanly game than
in the United States and basket
ball is left largely to the ladies,
considering the game not suitable
for the men to play.”
Most of Dean Gilbert's time was
spent in Canberra, Australia, the
capital of the Commonwealth gov
ernment and at Wellington, the
capital of New Zealand. He ac
cumulated a vast amount of ma
terial on the financial systems of
these countries and expects to
write a book of some description
during the next year.
He visited colleges of Australia
and New Zealand, particularly the
University of Sydney in Australia,
where Elizabeth Bannan, who ex
changed places with Professor
Moll of the English department
last year, is again teaching.
Returning to the United States,
Dean Gilbert stopped at the Uni
versity of Hawaii to see Dr.
Charles H. Edmunson, a former
member of the biology staff at the
University of Oregon, and Merton
K. Cameron, former teacher here.
